    i was out in public kind of musing about how ugly maryland's flag is

    like i think i said that it was the clown of state flags

    and some random stranger overheard me and got pissed and called me out

    it was kind of embarrassing for both of us i think

    He was probably from Maryland. That is one thing about this state we all really love the flag and are proud of the state.

    No matter that the new flag is it won't be as badass as Maryland's.

    Maryland_stateFLAG.gif

    that's ugly, not badass

    The Flag of the State of Maryland consists of the heraldic banner of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore. It is the only state flag in the United States to be based on English heraldry. (While the flag of Washington, D.C. is a representation of the coat of arms of the Washington family, Washington, D.C. is not a state.)

    That's right, we have actual British heraldry as our flag.

    Respect, bitches.

    No. It's still butt-ugly.

    As a current Maryland resident, I'd like to say:

    yeah, it's really ugly. But it certainly isn't more ugly than the flag for my previous state, New York.

    I love me the Jack, but really, does that flag scream America! or what? - I think what... Comparatively it owns most other state flags though, all of the original 13 colonies in particular have awful state flags.

    Getting back to the Puerto Rican issue anybody who thinks any Republican except the 10% most hardcore racist will oppose Puerto Rico becoming a state is deluding themselves with their hate.

    1. As somebody said Republicans are big in Puerto Rico and maybe they all become democrats the day after statehood, but it is still enough to give Republicans a legitimate belief that the state will swing their way. Remember under Bush they had a delusion that they could get the full Hispanic vote.

    2. Republicans still love the idea of Manifest Destiny. Adding more territory trumps almost anything. Give the average Republican his choice and the world would consist of Mexico, France, Russia, China, Middle East and a very large United States. Puerto Rico is probably the last chance to add an extra state ever, that is a once in the lifetime opportunity for most Republicans.

    3. The average Tea Partier hates Mexicans not Hispanics in general. True they treat all hispanics the same, but they in their ignorance assume all Hispanics in the US are Mexicans. Ask the average Republican about Mexico and then ask them about Brazil and you will get two totally different answers.

    4. Its an untenable position. To prevent U.S. Citizens from gaining statehood would cast them in a very negative light even with a significant portion of there own party, Much less the American people in general, Much less the U.N.

    Better yet a bear dual wielding a shotgun and a halberd hanging from the talons of said eagle.

    It says, "we're going kick your ass, but from the air because casualties look bad", which is really America in a nutshell.
